Personally, after 100 miles on my rebuild I drove it hard. Real hard. That engine sealed up tight and didn't burn a drop of oil for the next 80,000 miles. Nothing like going 6,000 miles between oil changes and not adding a drop of oil.

maybe im just a tard but would an aquamist fix your problems with detonation

A good tune will fix my detonation. Aquamist is a band aid for poor tuning.

Aquamist is only a band-aid if you have poor tuning. With proper tuning aquamist can be a very powerful tool.

Yes, but in regards to the question asked, it's a bandaid.

Yeah with prices the way they are, and long commutes there is nothing wrong with octane flipping (in my opinoin) but yeah the low boost is the killer :(

I detonated 100% though, I could hear it heh

Those brackets on the engine, did you make them or buy them? Trying to figure out a good way to pull the engine out of the car/put it back in.
